"My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me."
-- John 17:20, 21
Compassion-sponsored children have access to education, medical care, nutritious food and knowledge of the love of Jesus. They have been so blessed that many of them pray for their sponsors every day. Yet the children need prayer, too.
The following are prayer requests from the Thailand Country Office about the children, families, church partners and staff in Thailand:
- Please pray for the children and families who are being threatened by flooding due to Typhoon Nock-Ten. Pray for God to preserve the homes of the children.
- Please pray for protection over children and families during the rainy season. Pray for God to protect them from diseases such as dengue fever and malaria.
- Please pray for the children and families located near the violence between the Burmese soldiers and the Karen rebels. Pray for God's peace to enter this land.
- Please pray for the children who have been abandoned by one or both of their parents. Ask the Lord to provide a loving caretaker. Also pray for the children to find healing in the Lord so as not to carry the feeling of shame or guilt.
